Airman charged after fatal hit-and-run in Goldsboro

GOLDSBORO, N.C. (WTVD) -- A Seymour Johnson Air Force Base LRS airman has been charged after a fatal hit-and-run involving a moped on Saturday morning.

It happened just before 3 a.m. at the intersection of Slocumb Street and Olivia Lane.

Authorities say Terrence Walker entered the intersection on his Yamaha moped against a red light, was struck by a 2007 Toyota Highlander and fell to the ground.

The driver of the Toyota, 40-year-old Lukumon Charles Rasaki, failed to stop and left the scene of the crash.

U.S. Air Force officials said Airman First Class Rasaki was assigned to the 4th Logistics Readiness Squadron.

Initial reports indicate Rasaki was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol during the incident.

Walker was transported to Wayne UNC Healthcare where he succumbed to his injuries.
